Easter is just around the corner, and that means we still have plenty of time to enjoy Easter crafts and recipes.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. Easter is my favorite holiday. I love that it celebrates Spring, that it is filled with bright, cheery colors, that it has bunnies and chicks, and that it means the best darn candy all year long. Some people wait all year for Christmas candy and treats. Not me. I’m Easter all the way. The malted eggs, the blue cakes and frostings, the hot cross buns. I could go on and on!! So with that in mind, enjoy this blog post which is a roundup of some of my favorite Easter crafts and recipes from around the web!

Surely you’ve seen those gorgeous Robin Egg Blue, speckled eggs going around Pinterest. I certainly have! DIY Dyed Easter Eggs from natural products is a pretty hot trend this year. So I wanted to give this project a try.  Here’s what I made. Aren’t they gorgeous? Want to know how I did it?

There’s nothing like baking for holidays. It’s an opportunity to make something extra special that your probably would not make on a regular Thursday in January. But the Thursday just before Good Friday? That’s a whole different story. That’s a perfect time to bake these delicious Easter Egg Cookies. I’ve got just the recipe for you! They are as at home in a child’s Easter Basket as they are served with your Easter Brunch.

I call this cutie the Topsy Turvy bunny. He’s a mischievous wee lad who is obviously nosing around into something. So all we see is that cute cotton tail and his enormous bunny feet. There is a free printable that goes with this darling pom pom bunny, and he’s perfect for your child’s Easter Basket!

These pom pom bunnies would be a great addition to a child’s Easter Basket. Or place a couple of these around the house for the morning Easter Egg Hunt.

So I know everybody does Bailey’s for St. Patrick’s Day. But what about breaking Lent on Easter? How about not feeling totally guilty about drinking on a sacred holiday by making this Vegan Baileys Irish cream Recipe?

Every year I promise myself that I’m going to make this beautiful cake from Country Living Magazine for Easter Brunch. Maybe this year will be the year!

Who doesn’t love a Mason Jar craft? This is such a cute idea for sending mini baskets home with children.

This colorful Easter garland is so easy to make with scrapbook paper and yarn! Both kids and adults will love making this together.

I absolutely LOVE birds, so this little pom pom birdie project really caught my eye! I will definitely have to make up a couple of these!

How to sew bunny softie. This is an easy sewing pattern for beginner sewists. Make this softie for Easter or anytime you need a cute gift for a child.

Patty loves figuring out new ways to use pom poms, where to stash more yarn and is always wondering what to bake next...chocolate or lemon? When not dreaming up new things to knit (or bake), she loves riding her beach cruiser on the Boardwalk, escaping to mid week movie matinees, and planting new things in her container garden.
